The Tangerine Turtle Lives On

Filed under: Site News — Laura Moncur @ 4:41 am

08-13-18: So, I gave The Tangerine Turtle to my friend. Then she gave it to her friend and that friend traded it in at a dealership to get a travel trailer. I was sure that the dealership would just sell it for scrap. They didn’t.

On my walk today, I passed a house about a quarter mile away from mine and guess what I saw?! My beloved trailer, ready to make another family happy! ❤️ It took all the restraint I had not to knock on the door at 7am. 😜

MORE Water Leaks Fixed in the 1977 Nomad

Filed under: Site News — Laura Moncur @ 4:27 am

09-09-18: Fixing the water leaks in the Nomad. Previous owners had used PVC. We replace it with Sharkbite and PEX. Pressurized for 30 mins. Dry so far. The drain valve on the water heater blew. Replaced it, too. The Camco 3/8” has 1/4” middle that comes out and fits.

We flushed about a cup of calcium deposits out of the heater while the valve was off. 😲

Five Extremely Creepy and Haunted Forests

Filed under: Camping,Places To Visit — Laura Moncur @ 8:39 am

In honor of Halloween, I found this video about haunted forests. The next time you’re thinking of camping, here are some suggestions for an particularly interesting excursion.

The Five Places are here:

Old House Woods, Matthews County, VA, USA

Cannoock Chase Woods, Staffordshire, UK

Dering Wood near Pluckley, Kent, UK

  • Wikipedia – Pluckley: Pluckley had an entry in the 1989 Guinness Book of Records for being “the most haunted village in Britain”, with 12 different ghosts reported.

Hoia Baciu Forest, Romania

Aokigahara Forest, Japan

After watching this, I think I’ll just go camping is in nice, brightly lit parking lot next to Walmart. How about you?

Most Haunted Campgrounds

Filed under: Camping,Places To Visit — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

This article from CampsitePhotos.com gives us a collection of the most haunted campgrounds in America.

I love that all of these campgrounds are in the States, so I can visit them with my own camper. In fact, they’re all in the west, so I could visit them all easily:

  • Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park / Northern California
  • Holcomb Valley Campground / Big Bear, California
  • Beaver Creek Campground / West Yellowstone, Montana
  • Crystal Lake Recreation Area – Crystal Lake Campground / Southern California
  • Silver Strand State Beach / Coronado Island – San Diego, California
  • Humboldt Redwoods State Park / Northern California

The next time you’re in the mood for a scare, why don’t you plan a trip to one of these campgrounds and spend the night. Even if there are no ghosts there, you’ll be guaranteed a night of a little extra vigilance.
